Ten of Cups Art and Meaning Vivid Waite Smith Deck

Designation

Ten of Cups

About the Deck

Vivid Waite Smith

These cards are featured in my book, "A Concise Guide to the Tarot" by Loren Lundgren. I took the information for the meanings on these tarot cards from "The Pictorial Key to the Tarot, Being Fragments of a Secret Tradition Under the Veil of Divination", by A. E. Waite, 1911, now in the public domain. I edited the tarot card descriptions and meanings for clarity and brevity, modernizing the text. I scanned in the original black and white illustrations of the cards drawn by Pamela Colman Smith, from the 1911 book. I digitally retouched and painted those illustrations in detailed color.

Description

Above are ten cups in a rainbow. This vision is contemplated in wonder and awe by a husband and wife below. His right arm is around her, his left raised upward. She raises her right arm. Two children dancing near them have not observed the miracle, but are happy in their own play. There is a home on the horizon.
